It's really none of my business but I think you must be misinterpreting parts of the article, Nikola. It's all good and positive. A writer who writes about someone's artwork ...

I have to admit that it hadn't occurred to me to compare GWEI and Wikipedia Art. What I thought was interesting about the Wikipedia Art concept was the idea of ...

I think it's pretty generally accepted by now that knowledge is not fixed and that's why wikipedia will accept anything that can be backed up with citations. Based on the ...
John Medeski is arguably one of the best current Melotron players out there. It's very prominent on the MMW album "End of the World Party" (for instance, but you hear ...
Ah.. like Alfred North Whitehead's "precepts".

God forbid that any artist should ever inject any of their own creativity into their work. I mean, we ARE looking for the truth, right? We've had enough of these ...
Here's another more modern version. The SVG version. Again, this is fully valid SVG 1.1


<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C ...
If you replace the instances of Transitional and transitional to Strict and strict in the DOCTYPE, this will validate as XHTML 1.0 strict. So there.

Ed, I really have to wonder about your statement that "A significant part of that larger trend is that the gallery world today is overwhelming for-profit rather than non." ...
